28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

 

 

Oh all right. It’s getting to be the dog days of summer and I freely admit that I get a little lax. I wear my jeans more than slacks, I read a little more than normal, I slow down. But I will say this, I like to think that’s what summers are for.  I think we’re so engrained in a Labor Day to Memorial Day routine that it’s hard not to wind down a bit.

 

I can look backwards and ruminate on Synod Assembly, Vacation Bible School, Wa Du Shuda Days, handing out candy to happy little ones, Touched Twice Clinic, celebrating 165 years, and decisions made at Churchwide Assembly that I am absolutely gleeful about!

 

But at this point in the summer I look forward to things as well. September brings another school year and things re-boot in the church too! 

 

“God’s Work, Our Hands” Sunday  is September 8th - doing good in our local community!

 

Adult Class begins September 16th

 

Confirmation begins September 18th

 

Funeral Planning Classes offered 2 different times: Wednesday, September 25th at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, September 28th at 9 a.m.

 

There are a gazillion verses (at least!) in the Bible that talk about resting in the Lord and we take them seriously. But there is also much work to be done in the  Kingdom!

 

And so we begin again. Here we go! It’s time for a fresh run!  Let’s “run the good race that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1)

 

Thank you Lord Jesus! Pr. Wendy
